Ngorongoro Conservation Area, the densest population of lions in the world.
The Ngorongoro Conservation Area is a protected area which has been on the UNESCO´s World Heritage Site since 1979. The Ngorongoro crater is the world’s largest inactive volcanic caldera and is the best place in Tanzania to see the Big Five. The caldera’s floor is predominantly open grassland, a home to a diverse array of animals including elephants, black rhinos, leopards, buffaloes, zebras, warthogs, wildebeests and the densest population of lions in the world. The local Maasai people also graze their livestock in the crater.
Lake Manayara National Park
Lake Manyara is a scenic gem that is perfect for bird watching.
Lake Manyara National Park is known for the flamingos that inhabit the lake during the wet season. More than 400 species of birds inhabit the park and many remain throughout the year. Lake Manyara National Park is therefore a good spot for bird watching. Visitors to the park can expect to see more than 100 different species of bird on a day. There is a hippo pond at one end of the park where visitors can get out of their cars and observe from a safe distance.
Tarangire National Park
The Tarangire National Park is famous for its high density of elephants and baobab trees.
Tarangire National Park is a nice park to visit during the dry season when large herds of migrant grazers, like wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala, gazelle and hartebeest visit Tarangire to get water from the Tarangire River. Tarangire is famous for its high density of baobab trees but also for its big herds of elephants roaming around the whole year. Tarangire is the greatest concentration of wildlife outside the Serengeti ecosystem and the place in Tanzania where dry-country antelopes are regularly observed.

The Maasai are famous for their colorful dresses and intricate jewelry.
Maasai society is patriarchal in nature, where the older men make all major decisions for their Maasai group. The Maasai worship a single deity. However, in the recent years, many Maasai have also adopted Christianity or Islam. Traditional Maasai life centers around their cattle. Maasai’s needs for food are met by their cattle. They eat the meat, drink the milk and on occasion, drink the blood. Part of the Maasai religious belief is that God has given them all the cattle on earth, leading to the belief that rustling cattle from other tribes is a matter of taking back what is rightfully theirs.
Hadzabe tribe is one of the indigenous groups living in Northern Tanzania.
You can visit these traditional people, go on hunting with them and experience how they have survived in the harsh wilderness for thousands of years. The Hadzabe live around Lake Eyasi which is located in the Rift Valley. The Hadzabe men are hunters, hunting with bows and arrows while the women are gatherers, collecting roots and fruits to eat. Before going hunting, the Hadzabe make and use locally made poison for their spears and use ingenious camouflage when hunting. The Hadzabe are among the last hunter-gatherers in the world.
The Iraqw tribe is the main ethnic group living in Karatu.
The typical household has its own agricultural plot and livestock but the houses are dispersed in the village. Their traditional houses are mud plastered houses with thatched roofs. These houses have a small entryway and usually no windows. The house is divided into rooms and there is a sleeping platform covering part of the main living space. Inside the entryway is a room where the livestock are brought for the night. The Iraqw people have for decades avoided conflicts with the hostile Maasai but the tribes now live together in harmony and have mutual respect for one another.
